This is just the sort of information to give children a background to history and hopefully encourage them to delve a little deeper into this fascinating subject. They will love to appal parents, friends and teachers with the gruesome facts in the book - and the illustrations are just as gruesome.Parents in Touch (www.parentsintouch.co.uk)
